How many years have you kept bettas?

I just answered a great poll by the admin asking how old each of us are. I was one of the 5 oldest that answered! (Yikes!)

So it got me to wondering ...

how many years has everyone here been keeping bettas?

Haha, I feel like such a newb, just a couple months shy of a year if you count Sasuke, my first betta, who I had for a while before I actually really got into bettas. :P

Though I've kept other fish for a number of years, not well mind you until last...March I think when my dad gave me the 50 gallon for my room and I went researchin'...but yeah ^^; Haha, I should just be quiet ones going to listen to my advice after they find out how long I've really been in the hobby :P

I had to go through pics to be sure but I've had Tango since Feb 5th last year. So, almost a year. I had guppies when I was in my 20's though.

I think my first was June of last year. I'm up to 6 and will have more when we move in the spring.

I'm completely addicted :)

It's been almost 2 years for me. I had a couple bettas as a kid but they died being in the small bowl. So I didn't start seriously keeping bettas until almost a couple years ago.

Just because you haven't had a betta for very long doesn't mean that you don't know much about them. I think a lot of us researched before we got our bettas or researched right after getting one.
